I need your help with a Wireless & Wired Set up connection.

I tryed calling apple for help but said i needed to pay 25 buck if I wanted help so I am asking here.

I just finished building a Gaming PC and And I need to connect it to the internet using ethernet. the problem is me and my family have like 3-4 Ipod touces and 2 macs in the house.

So if you guys could give me detailed instructions on how to set up my airport extreme with a wireless and a wired connection for my Gaming PC that would be great.

There's just too much to go over on a forum.

Plug the gaming PC into the Airport Extreme as you so wish.

Then once you're connected to the AE you can use Airport Utility to setup the network.

Then you can setup the access for wireless devices and your families iDevices will work no problem!
